* In one Japanese ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' radio show, Musashi and Kojiro are playing two people (named "Jessie" and "James") who are slowly dying of lack of oxygen on a spaceship that has went off the rails. They mention having met several times before they became friends. They first met when they were trying to save a kid from falling and they hit their heads together. Jessie and James later met again at a store when they noticed they were reading the exact same book. They then kept on meeting again and again.

This meeting can happen by way of any of an innumerable array of circumstances, so long as there's something cutesy about it. Possibly they have an [[WhenAJerkLovesATsundere instant dislike]] for one another. Maybe they [[CrashIntoHello crash into each other]] in a hallway and papers fly about. Maybe one of them has been shopping for ISOStandardUrbanGroceries and trips over the other walking down the street. Perhaps mistaken identity or other wacky misunderstanding is involved. Sometimes someone is [[NakedFirstImpression naked or in an otherwise embarrassing situation]].

* Subverted in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack''. Li ends up saving Chiaki several times just by being in the right place at the right time, including once with a FakeOutMakeOut, and eventually promises to help her escape the country. [[spoiler:However, "Li" is just the civilian alias of Hei, a.k.a. "The Black Reaper". He was stringing her along purposefully in order to learn what she knew. And on top of that, it wasn't even the real Chiaki- it was a Doll programmed with her personality as a decoy to draw him out.]]

* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Usagi and Mamoru meet when she accidentally hits him with a failing test she'd tossed over her shoulder. This repeated several times in the [[Anime/SailorMoon first anime]] with her hitting him in the head with flung shoes, maintaining the SlapSlapKiss dynamic they had for much of the first series. They even met again at the finale of the first series, after everyone has lost their memories, and yet she meets him again as the same stock footage of the test paper incident plays from the first episode - making this a ''re''Meet Cute.

* Franchise/BerniceSummerfield and her future (and then ex-) husband Jason Kane in the ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures''. She's on an multispecies alien planet which she knows has no contact with Earth, trying to communicate with a shifty humanoid alien in pidgin (the Doctor has disappeared and taken his TranslatorMicrobes with him). He's an [[AlienAbduction Alien Abductee]], who is partly fascinated by the first fellow human he's seen in years, but is mostly amusing himself playing along with what he considers her patronising attitude to the natives. She is not happy when she figures it out. BelligerentSexualTension ensues.

* A rather interesting variation (less "Meet Cute" than "Meet Morbidly Fascinated") happens in ''Series/BabylonBerlin'', where Gereon Rath - a police inspector working in the vice squad - and Charlotte Ritter - a seretary working for homicide - collide after getting out of the paternoster (an old-timey lift), and spill their respective departments' evidence photos all over the floor. As they try and figure out which of the scattered pictures feature grisly murders and which depict perverted sex crimes, they use the chance to make introductions.
